Are You Ready for Radiesse Hands?
The areas of your body that show aging the soonest are those which are exposed to the sun most often. This means the skin on the face and the hands. Much attention is focused on erasing years from the face by using dermal fillers, chemical peels, Botox, and much more. But what about the hands? They are often neglected! They will quickly give away your age, no matter how well you maintain your face. Hands that are wrinkled and spotted can make someone look older even if they have a young-looking face. The use of Radiesse to address the needs of aged hands might be the ideal option for you.
Radiesse injected into the hands can cost approximately (on average) $600-$800 for a syringe, and it is common for each hand to need one syringe that is 1.5 ml. The treatment lasts about one year. Some professionals recommend coupling Radiesse treatments with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments first for the most youthful look. It’s very important to be sure that your injector knows what they are doing and that they are well-trained because injection into the hands can bring on a few potential issues that are not necessarily present in the face.
What are the potential complications? The backs of the hands have tendons and veins and an injection into a vein can lead to emboli (the product ends up outside of the hands) and when injected into a tendon it can cause it to become weak and maybe even lead to a ruptured tendon. No one wants that!
